Provided Edu material to Govt high School, Seshadripuram, Bangalore

Dear All

 

Last Saturday(Aug 30,2008) Myself, Ravi, Ram & Reshma Kurup visited the Govt school in Seshadripuram to distribute 50 note books & geomentry box for X std students. Earlier our member Reshma had brought to our notice the requirement of this school. She has been associated with this school for few months now, conducting Art of Living classes to the students.

 

About the school :

          The campus has both middle school & high school together. Infrastructure has been provided by Rajasthan youth association. So infra is decent enough J !

          High school has 200 students, lower class has 230+ students.

          No fee is being collected. School has both kannada & English medium. About 30% are in English medium.

          Have not seen any droup out(That’s what they mentioned J )

          As usual uniform & text books are provided by Govt. Also 80% children are SC says the HM. So by late Oct or so they also get few note books from SC/ST welfare board. But very late, loose its purpose – Mid day meal provided by Akshya Patra

          Schools seems to be giving extra efforts in Sports too. Infact even during the time we visited there was PT drill going on . I also hear from Reshma that kids practice some meditation & Yoga. In cluster level sports meet they have wons lots of prize is a testimony

          The school HM Mr.Lokesh is also the AEO for the cluster.(This Cluster has 9 schools)

          As for fee requirement it is usually taken care by constituency MLA – Mr.Guntu Rao. For example this year some 15 student had to pay 10th exam fee of 375/head. He had paid the full amount

          Also we met a student whose heart operation was done at Jayadeva 100% free of cost through CM funds. That also was arranged by Mr.Guntu Rao. We could not meet up with thim other day, planning in future to do so

 

Requirements :

          Need some volunteers to help 9,10th std kids with their studies.

          Another computer teacher if possible for students in lower class. The current teacher deployed by NIIT handles only for one teacher. He handles daily class for 8,9,10 class.

          If any notebooks requirement come up they will inform us through Reshma.

Hassan Doddagaddavahalli Govt Composite High School.

Hello Friends,

– Currently there are 15 Staff members, 10 for High school which includes 1 clerk and 1 admin and for primary 5 teachers.
– Govt has sanctioned 10 computers last year but till now its not dilevered. High school has dedicated one separate room for the same.
– SC/ST kids Govt is providing free notebooks. As per HM 4 note books per kid.
– Govt gives out the 1 pair uniform to the kids and School as asked the parents to get one more set of uniform on there own.
– In the High School we can see that all the kids are neatly dressed.
– Govt has given 7500 Rs for the vessels, which HM claims that its not sufficient and need more.
– On a average there are 10 Kids dropout every year, due to the financial problems. I had asked HM to get the list of dropouts, so that kids who are interested can continue the studies further.
– Pass percentage last year was 75%, which was dropped to 45% this year.
– Most of the parents are agriculturist.
– Kids come from the 11 villages.

        – Mulenahalli (1.5KM)
        – Girimaradi (1.5KM)

Funding:
– Currently there is no funding coming from the local bodies, abs’tly zero funding.
– Fees collected from the kids are utilized for the note books and other extra activities.
Ex:
from High School Kids Fees collected is 150 Rs.
Below is the % spend

150 Rs = 5% (Medical Fund) + 20% (Lab Fund) + 20% Sports + 20%(Library) + 10%(Music) + 5%(Arts) + 20%(mandatory has to go to govt)
– No. of students X 150 is the budget for the whole year.
– Every year teachers end up paying amount to kids for other activities (taking out for some functions etc etc)
– Above fees are collected from non SC/ST kids.
– Funds also used for:
        – 3 Preparatory Exams
        – 2 Exams
        – Annual Festivals (if any villagers come forward then good else from school fund only.)

Activities:

– State Govt has started a program called “PRITHIBA KARANJI”, which is a science exhibition where in kids can show there talents and teachers help the kids. For this program school have won 30 Prices so far. HM gave us the list of students who are going to take part in the district level science exhibition.
– Some of models which kids prepared are “SOLAR COOKER MODEL”, “VILLEGE REFRIGERATOR”

Requirement:
– Currently there are no note books requirement as per the HM. As they have utilized the school fees to give out the note books to the kids. And there are some requirement which might come up start of the next year. And said that she will contact us.

– There is a urgent requirement for the cooking vessels, Currently there are only one set of vessels and where in the food is prepared. Food is prepared in the Primary school and the High school kids have to talk 1 KM to have the food. HM requested that if we could provide a set of vessels and plates for this year then that would be great.
